Work "Nostalgia do Tempo" (21th Century) by Simone FaresinVirtual Museum of Lusophony
Work: Nostalgia do Tempo
Timane explores the subjective connections between past and present with shadows, in a composition that tends to be cyclical. It is worth highlighting the smooth, but rectilinear, transition of acts presented in the work.
Work "Coração Exilado" (21th Century) by Simone FaresinVirtual Museum of Lusophony
Work: Coração Exilado
This production explores a reinterpretation of modern arts, where the message of exile is highlighted by the heart. Special attention must be paid to the hybrid form in which the bodies are represented.
Work "Um Moçambique Próspero" (21th Century) by Simone FaresinVirtual Museum of Lusophony
Work: Um Moçambique Próspero
A poetic reflection on the Mozambican imaginary, this work is also a call for reflection on social relations and the construction of a democratic country.
Work "Desejo dum suburbano" (21th Century) by Simone FaresinVirtual Museum of Lusophony
Work: Desejo dum suburbano
The watercolor, with touches of cubism and surrealism places the observer before the class relationship between the center and periphery.
Work "Justiça Inexistente" (21th Century) by Simone FaresinVirtual Museum of Lusophony
Work: Justiça Inexistente
In this composition, the subversion of the images leads to reflection on the relationship between justice and order. The angular arrangement of the represented extremities highlights the animosity of institutional relations in their capillarities.
Work "Retrato de um homem" (21th Century) by Simone FaresinVirtual Museum of Lusophony
Work: Retrato de um homem
Experimental work influenced by pop art from the 60s, which brings energy and warmth to the photographic representations of the human. Although it does so in an unpretentious way, the play of colors demonstrates a shrewd interpretation of human nature.
Work "Clamando a Deus" (21th Century) by Simone FaresinVirtual Museum of Lusophony
Work: Clamando a Deus
In yet another representation with a clear influence of modern art from the beginning of the 20th century, Timane inverts concepts and values regarding religion and religiosity. It is worth mentioning the collective movement of the work.
Work "Um lobo na TV" (21th Century) by Simone FaresinVirtual Museum of Lusophony
Work: Um lobo na TV
Work that explores the theme of hybrid media, referring the observer to an anthropophagic reflection. A special look must be given to the continuous transition of the objects represented in the work.
Work "O pão nosso de cada dia" (21th Century) by Simone FaresinVirtual Museum of Lusophony
Work: O pão nosso de cada dia
Another highly critical representation, in which Timane uses images and perspective to construct a materialist narrative of African social reality.
Work "A mão de Deus" (21th Century) by Simone FaresinVirtual Museum of Lusophony
Work: A mão de Deus
The closing image of this collection is closely linked to the critical and rhetorical sensibility of much of the artist's work. Observing the contours, lines, colors and fusions, it is possible to visualize the "signature" of the author. It is worth highlighting the open ended visual narrative that this work represents: nature, light, social criticism and cult value.
